Home remedies can be substitutes for expensive and synthetic lotions and creams. It can work wonders and it cannot harm us. So, here are some tips that we can consider:

We can create a mask out of oranges. We only need to mix 1.4 tablespoon of orange juice and 1 tablespoon of yogurt.
  • Ginseng: Ginseng can also help the skin. It can increase the collage of the skin thus prevents age-related sagging. It does not end there because it can hydrate the skin and eventually moderates dark spots. We only need to whisk together the ginseng powder (from the tea bag) and egg yolk. After mixing, we can apply it directly unto our face and rinse.


  • Saffron: Saffron or kesar is filled with minerals like potassium, copper, iron, magnesium and zinc which can help us achieve a blemish-free skin. We only need to mix 1 tablespoon of sandalwood powder, 2 to 3 strands of saffron and 2 teaspoon of milk. We can use the mixture as a face mask.
  • Castor oil: For our hair treatment, we can use castor oil. Castor oil reduces our split-ends by controlling breakage. The oil also has the power to moisturize the hair scalp and shaft. We only need to mix castor oil and coconut oil before massaging it unto our scalp. We have to make sure to leave it be for at least an hour before washing it. This is to make sure that the oil will penetrate unto the roots.
  • Papaya: Papayas are rich in different nutrients that can help our hair boost growth. Papayas also help prevent balding. We only need to blend together 1 cup of diced ripe papaya, 1 cup of diced banana, 1 tablespoon of coconut oil and 1 cup of yogurt. After blending, it is now ready to apply on our scalp and hair. We have to wash it after 30 minutes.
